    Default Zone 1 closure??

    If you didn't know the Caribou Hot Line reported zone 1 would be closing. Later in the day they updated the hotline, Then they said zone 1 is still open. I believe 30 or so caribou have been taking in 1 an 9 in zone 4. The hotline said they're going to do a radio collar survey. I guess my question is will adfg close a zone if quotas haven't been met?

    Hot line says zone 1 still open. Harvest was slow after yesterday. Radio tracking flight will be done to check on caribou movement. If too many move near the steese they usually put in a 6 mile no hunting area along the steese.
    I doubt they will close before quotas are met. Gonna be plenty of folks out there when moose opens and harvest could increase.

    I have less friends now!!

    I like it the way it is Everyone gets a chance to hunt.I bet your tone would change if you didn't get drawn for a couple years for a zone 1 tag. Granted this does make for a madhouse
